Ex-officer accused of assaulting wife, mom takes plea deal

Minden, Neb. —  A former Hastings police officer accused of assaulting his wife and mother has taken a plea deal.

Adams County Court records say 27-year-old Cody Bland pleaded no contest Thursday to two misdemeanor counts of assault. Prosecutors dropped a related charge in exchange for his pleas. His sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 27.

The records say Bland’s wife told officers that Bland kicked, shoved and tackled her at their Hastings home Oct. 30. She managed to summon some of her husband’s relatives for help after he took her cellphone. His mother says he slapped and kicked her after she arrived.

Bland had been on the Hastings force for four years. He resigned in November.
